Practice In Motion
In 2003 MuShield was contracted to help facilitate the development of a magnetic shield that aided in the proper operative function of the artificial heart – known as the Jarvik Heart Pump – as it communicated with electronics to filter and deliver blood throughout the body. No small task. Since then, we have continued to work alongside companies in the medical industry, striving to create the next breakthrough technology to help diagnose illness and save lives.
The medical industry is all about reducing risks and improving health with the pioneered advancement of cutting-edge technology. With MuShield on your side, this is exactly what will be accomplished – robust solutions and healthy manufacturing practice.
Another example of MuShield’s contribution to the medical device industry can be found in catheters medical professionals use during procedures, which provide 3D mapping – enabling doctors to make more informed and concise diagnoses. These catheters include mumetal magnetic shield components produced here in our Londonderry, NH facility. Without the specced out magnetic shielding, results could come back inconclusive or inaccurate due to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is obviously a non starter in any medical device.
Other applications we’ve aided through the fabrication of our magnetic shield technologies:
- MRI machines
- Ultrasound equipment
- Power supplies
…and many other types of sensitive technology upon which the industry relies, from the computers and devices at the administrative level, to right in the thick of surgery.
